The Portsmouth Aircrew Association & Friends is not just a club for former aircrew. The national Aircrew Association existed until its cessation in 2011. Whilst we maintain a core membership of both wartime and cold war aircrew, continuing Associations are run as private and autonomous entities for the benefit of their members and welcome many non-aircrew members and civilians alike.
Meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each month at the Royal British Legion, Hayling Island, at 11 am and we always include a very interesting speaker. On Monday 12th March 2018 Peter Beer will give an illustrated talk on ‘MAF: Flying for Life’ and on Monday 9th April John Newman recounts the training and operations of the ‘Parachute Regiment. Branch meetings are supplemented with an active social life featuring monthly lunches, a summer outing and a lively Christmas party.
Full membership is only £5 pa, (no charge for a taster visit), and new ‘Friends’, whatever their background, are always made very welcome; so give us a visit. Further details from Keith Watson on 023 9247 5961.
